9780813348612: Kinship and Gender: An Introduction

Does kinship still matter in today's globalized, increasingly mobile world? Do family structures continue to influence the varied roles that men and women play in different cultures? Answering with a resounding yes!”, Linda Stone offers a lively introduction to and working knowledge of kinship. She firmly links these concepts to cross-cultural gender studies, illuminating the malleable nature of gender roles around the world and over time.

Written to engage students, each chapter provides key terms and useful generalizations gleaned through cross-cultural research on the interplay of kinship and gender in both traditional societies and contemporary communities. Detailed case studies help students understand how such generalizations are experienced in real life.” Stone also considers the ramifications of current social problems and recent developments in reproductive technology as she demonstrates the relevance of kinship and gender to students' lives.

The fully-revised fifth edition features discussion of cross-cultural examples complimented by expanded coverage of kinship and gender dynamics within the United States. Stone considers current evolutionary research on kinship and gender, and offers new case studies addressing international adoptions and polygynous marriage. An entirely new chapter explores the globalization of kinship in the 21st century. The result is a broad and captivating exploration of anthropological approaches to family and gender.

About the Author:

Linda Stone is professor emeritus of anthropology at Washington State University. She is the coauthor of Gender and Culture in America and Genes, Culture, and Human Evolution.

Review:

"Stone's innovative approach to a difficult subject makes it abundantly clear that kinship is not passe. She weaves current cross-cultural stories and illustrations throughout the text to show how kinship values ground an individual in society.
Lina Fruzzetti, Brown University

Praise for Previous Editions:

"Stone's excellent text offers a broad introduction to key concepts in an anthropological understanding of the family."
William Donner, Kutztown University

"A wonderfully nuanced introduction to the relationships between kinship, gender roles, and reproductive life in a cross-cultural perspective. In addition to exploring the diversity of gendered relationships, Stone provides mechanisms that allow students to understand why particular gender roles develop in particular societies."
Shane Macfarlan, Oregon State University

"This is an excellent text for teaching, with compelling case studies and an engaging, accessible style. In offering an argument for the combining of ‘kinship' and ‘gender' into one domain of inquiry, it represents an invitation to students and scholars alike to revitalize kinship studies by drawing on gender scholarship. Now with additional material on contemporary social problems, this book is more user-friendly than ever."
Diane E. King, University of Kentucky
